I first met Michael Law in March 2017 when I joined Adidas Runners London in preparation for London Marathon. At this time he was preparing for his Guiness World Record for the fastest Marathon dressed as a star, which he held until January 2018. —
If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know that I love Obstacle Course Racing or OCR. Some people might also call it mud runs. I’ve started doing these runs in 2015 with a short 7km Spartan Sprint and immediately fell in love with it. I since have completed several Spartan Trifectas , Tough Mudders and other races. I love it so much, that I am now even doing Spartan Ultras or the grueling 24h World’s Toughest Mudder. But even if you are not as ambitious as me but only a weekend warrior here are three reasons why you should train for and run an Obstacle Course Race.
Have you ever thought of trying a new sport for the new year? Don’t wait any longer. It is a great way to break up your routine. Additionally a new sport will challenge you physically, mentally and even socially. So why not try a new sport as your New Years resolution?
Setting goals is something that we probably do every day. Sometimes you reach them, sometimes you fail. But how can you set a goal that you can actually accomplish? How can you break them down into an action plan and make a dream a reality?
It is the holiday season, which also means the end of the year is near. Not only is it time to reflect on the past year, but also to set goals for the next one. But goal setting is not an easy task. The SMARTER goal setting technique can hopefully help you to pick the right goal and to achieve it next year.
Are you trying to lose weight? Are you running to shed a few pounds? But are a bit lost? Don’t worry, I would be too. That’s why I have teamed up with my friend Manuela Dietzinger who runs in my OCR team Munich Elite Warriors and at Adidas Runners Munich. While I met her when she was already super fit and fast, I recently found out that she once weighed around 60 pounds more than she does today. And who should give better tips about sustainable weight loss than someone who has achieved exactly that. —
